A glimpse into the future
When smartwatches first became mainstream there was something a little futuristic about them. What we were suddenly able to place on our wrist was something straight out of a sci-fi movie or even James Bond. A watch that could take photos, send texts, and make phone calls saw us all in awe of how far technology had come.
People are keen to be involved with the latest gadgets in technology. It gives them a sense of status in some respects but in others, it satisfies an almost childlike curiosity. Wearables, such as smartwatches are the cutting edge in technology and with each new release, their capabilities just get better and better.
What can a smartwatch do?
While some people are keen to use their smartwatches to make calls and to keep abreast of their social media accounts, others are keen to tap into the potential health benefits. Beyond being a basic pedometer, an Apple Watch is able to monitor your heart rate and send you alerts if something isn’t quite right.
It is not just about tracking your fitness though. The rise of the Internet of Things means that smartwatches have an interesting future. With all devices being connected, these watches have the potential to be your technological hub, the place where you control everything else. Whether that is the heating in your home, your garage door, or just putting the lights on, your smartwatch becomes an integral part of your home and your living experience.
